Andrew Weeks


Bachelor of Science with Honours, PhD Ecological Genetics

Andrew’s passion is genetics. He is fascinated by the many ways different creatures adapt to their environments, and how nature versus nurture contributes to the process. His interest began when studying insects in agricultural environments, but it wasn’t long before Andrew’s focus shifted to the conservation field and he has since spent the last 15 years working on some of Australia’s most endangered animals. This includes his favourite species, the mountain pygmy possum, which also happens to live in his favourite environment, the Australian alps.

Andrew has developed expertise in a broad range of fields including conservation genetics, wildlife ecology, environmental monitoring, sustainability management, and agricultural pest management. In 2007, he teamed up with Dr Paul Umina to form Cesar, with the goal of creating an innovative science-based consultancy that could assist government and private sector clients to achieve sustainable outcomes using the latest scientific research.

Andrew’s passion for wildlife combined with his experience in population and ecological genetics has resulted in the development of unique conservation strategies that aim to maximise species resilience. Realising genetic issues are often not considered in conservation strategies, he has become actively involved in providing expertise in genetics to numerous threatened species programs throughout Australia. Andrew is currently a member of three state threatened species recovery teams, a specialist advisor to Parks Australia and Mt Rothwell Biodiversity and Interpretation Centre and a founding Director of EnviroDNA.
